Paintings for my Son's Bedroom

The above painting was made from a sketch my son did which you can see below. I wanted to make something a little more personal.

As I wasn't completely happy with the first painting (I wasn't overly excited about the background) I decided to do a second one.

Thanks for taking the time to look.

Pink Frangi's

My latest canvas which is 30 inch x 24 inch. Pleased with this one, as it's a commission for a friend, so wanted it to be 'right'.

Yellow Frangi's

A painting i've been working on for a while now. I am happy with the grungy way I've painted the flowers. Photo taken at night, so hard to see the detail in the background.

And now for something completely different

for me that is anyway...

I've titled this graffiti wall and size is 36 inch x 24 inch.

Yep it started out as something completely different, but this is the way it ended up :-) Loads of layers and a bit 'dark' for me, but nice to try something different.

My girl and her bestie and a new painting

My girl and her bestie (Emma is on the right) after their presentation at the assembly this morning. These two stick together like glue and are each others biggest fans. So cute!!

and my latest painting which is a gift for a friends daughter. I wanted there to be lots of sparkle, so maybe I went a little overboard on the hearts and stars :-) but hopefully my friends daugher (who is a real girlie girl) will like it.

My daughter asked why I put wings on most of my girls..... hmmm I didn't think I did that, THAT much, but obviously my fascination with wings hasn't diminished quite yet.

Next painting an abstract....

This Boy

A recent LO done of Luc my son. I take the worst ever photo's (I didn't even take the main photo) and could not for the life of me get a good shot of this LO no matter how much I tried. Hubby is on night shift at the moment, so took the best of the worst and that's what I have posted :-)

Latest canvas - Koi Fish

I like this painting for it's simplicity, yet I may still add some more to it :-) but overall I am happy with the way it turned out. There is loads of texture in the background.

Size is 18 inch x 18 inch.

Page dedicated to my grandmother :-)

I haven't done many scrapbooking pages, but since my Nana passed in 2007, I have been meaning to dedicate a page to her.... yeah well nearly 2 years on and here we are... we can't rush these things :-)

Such a beautiful beautiful soul was my nana. Not only in looks, but in spirit also. Would have given the shirt off of her back and given it to a complete stranger if she thought they needed it. Accepted everyone for who they were and at face value. Treated all of us grandkids and great grandkids the same. We were all so very blessed to have had her in our lives.

Yes as my daughter said the other day "another squiggly flower painting"... hehe so honest aren't they. However I was particularly doing this for my own home and entrance way.

My next painting will (hopefully) be done in an oriental style with some koi fish. well that's my aim and what's in my head, now just gotta get it down on canvas.

Latest Canvas

A pic taken of my latest canvas (taken at night, so not the best photo) which I've titled "Angel".

I dont think I've ever changed a canvas so much as I have with this one. I changed the background colour 3 times, I changed the dress shade at least 5 times, I put on layers on the dress that I didn't like, then painted over.. but eventually I got to a stage that I'm happy with.

I like the way my faces are 'developing', however I'm not sure if I'll ever be happy with the shading that I do... not sure why, just being overly critical :-) I guess.

The sides of the canvas are painted with black and white stripes to carry on the black and white theme going on in the painting. This is a gift for a friend's daughter, so I hope she likes it.

Fabric Book Page

It's been so long since I've updated this blog.... have been away on holidays for 4 weeks and then school, work etc etc have slowed my creativity down somewhat.

Anyway though, I've finally finished the front page for Dawnie's fabric book.... so note this painting is done on fabric and was challenging but fun :-)

Thanks for looking

Painting done!!!!!!!!!1

Yes it's been a while since I have been able to get my hands mucky with paint... a lot of reasons, but the main one is a lack of mojo and interest in picking up a paint brush.

But thankfully I had a class with Karyn Gartel to inspire me and here is my piece.

Gosh it feels good to get mucky once again... I am all inspired now to paint paint paint, however we go away on a holiday next week, so I'll be really ready to rock and roll by the time I get home.

Size of canvas is 12" x 24"
